Move over toy scooters: Pro scooters are taking the world by storm!
Also known as Trick Scooters, Stunt Scooters, and Freestyle Scooters, pro scooters are stronger and more durable than their leisurely counterparts and are built for bigger tricks and more airtime.
But before you run out to buy a new pro scooter, it’s important to understand what to look for to ensure you are getting a quality product.
This is especially true if you plan on enduring jumps and hard landings with your new scooter!
What Should I Look For In a Pro Scooter?Before we talk about the best pro scooter brands, let’s look at the things you should take into consideration when buying one:
- Scooter Grips: If you plan on freestyle riding and doing tricks, you want to make sure there are strong grips on the handle. The last thing you want is to land a backflip and have your hands slip away from the handles!
- Scooter Bars: There are two types of bars you can choose from, steel and aluminum, and your choice depends on your personal preferences. Steel is more stable but aluminum makes the scooter more lightweight.
- Scooter Fork: The most important component of a pro scooter is the fork, which comes in threaded or threadless. This is the piece that connects your bars, deck, and front wheels.
- Scooter Deck: The scooter deck is the main piece of the scooter that holds your weight and the other parts of the scooter. It needs to be sturdy and durable. As far as the style, width, and length go - that’s a matter of personal preference.
- Height and Weight: Unlike regular scooters, pro scooters usually do not have adjustable handlebars, so you need to make sure it’s the right size for you and that you’re not hunched over. The weight of your scooter will impact your riding experience with lightweight scooters being the best for stunts and tricks.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s check out those top brands!
